To say that this was one of the most memorable road trips of my life would be an understatement. I am well into my sixties and for me, it was a dream come true and it helped to tick one of my bucket lists!!In this context, I must complement Ashish and his wonderful team who were there each step of the way, allaying any and all concerns of the participants, ensuring that all medical and logistics support were meticulously organised and practically all our creature comforts were impeccably taken care of. As one can imagine, with 15 odd cars and more than 40 odd participants in such a gruelling and harsh mountainous terrain with some of the highest passes in the world, it does take its toll on both men (women) and machines. However, it was the thorough and impeccable preparation of the Cougar Motorsport team combined with passion and warm personal touch which saw the entire expedition conclude successfully with no major issues. With regard to stay and food arrangements, what I found refreshing was the fact that you actually get what is being promised – so there are no bad surprises. The hotels in Mashobra and Leh were amongst the best and even the camping locations were lots of fun and very well organised.Based on my personal experience, I would strongly recommend any event organised by Cougar Motorsport for any adventure enthusiast.
